But for how long you are thinking?! Do enjoy it for what it is.
It is, what it is.
People said, “It’s just around the corner”, “it’s in the labs now, in 5 years it will be on the market”.
Are drug companies interested in a cure, it seems too much money is made from the 10 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s (PLwP).
It is often said to me that the medication is so much better now. This is only uttered by people who have no idea. The Gold Standard is a 50 year old drug, the more recent medications, agonists, were and still are akin to poison for some people, leading to impulsive behaviour that has wrecked many lives due to gambling, shopping, gaming, sex.
“Agonists are like your best friend acting nice, but in the bigger picture they have an ulterior motive far more sinister than any benefit that the friendship could ever provide” – the words of someone who has been to hell and back and still climbing out of it.
“For some it works but in my opinion, structured social supports are required that extend way beyond what the medical profession can offer to monitor the participant. These supports need to look for the hidden signals as the participant can very easily deliberately hide the obvious signs. And there is a moral duty of care that isn’t being acknowledged, and those affected are too proud to publicly admit that they fell prey to the fiery forks of the devil disguised. This could never happen to me, I won’t be judged by my friends so I’ll keep it to myself”
The worldwide shortage of all forms of Sinemet has been going on for some time, it will continue to be in short supply until further notice.

The patients prescribed this medication are advised to find a substitute.
This will not be explained away with a nice ending.
It is what it is.
